I worked with Jeff Filiault from Subaru of Santa Cruz to finance a used Crosstrek Hybrid, which is the first car I have ever owned. I had already done my research, test driven the vehicle several times, and had two cars of the same model bought out from under me. So when I went to Jeff, he did not have to press hard to sell me.
In fact, he never really pressed at all. The guy was outstanding! I was trying to juggle financing with a remote cosigner, as well as buying from a distant city and only being able to manage weekend visits. Jeff helped me every step of the way. He held the vehicle for a whole week after I gave a soft commitment, and facilitated sending the paperwork to my cosigner several states away overnight (and near the holidays). After the purchase was squared away, he even drove over 40 minutes to pick me up from where I live and bring me to the dealership, all after business hours.
I really felt like Jeff and Subaru of Santa Cruz had my back throughout the whole process, and I would definitely buy from them again.
Tip: Do not buy any extended warranty, especially when financing. I love this dealer, but this is where they make massive margins.
Cheap interior -felt paper for carpets

No storage compartments in rear. “Felt” paper for carpets. No CD player. Not what I wanted for the money. Value not there. Do not recommend.
I brought my 2006 Baja in for the scheduled oil change and mentioned that a heat shield was vibrating and getting worse. Very annoying and from on line comments it sounded like a problem that was difficult or expensive to fix. The service manager said they would look to see if it could be improved. When I got the car back the noise was gone completely and I was not charged for the work. Excellent job.

The car is great for travel. The AWD is a great feature to have in the northeast. It got me through many bad snowstorms. Handles excellently and has great MPG
Probably drove salesman crazy, but it s my first car, other dealers wouldn't let me drive different cars, Greg at Santa Cruz Subaru took the time and let me chose the car I wanted not the car I didn't want but they wanted to sell me I bought an Outback, its the perfect fit...awd and cargo and power and great MPG !! Thank you Greg and Santa Cruz Subaru
An excellent car for the price.

I have owned my 2018 Crosstrek for 7 months and I still love it as much as the day I drove it off the lot. Excellent fuel economy for the weight and drivetrain. Fun to drive with fantastic steering response. It is a bit underpowered for my liking but it does have the torque for highway passing. The cargo area is spacious and the rear seats fold completely flat which is great for hauling. After test driving and researching several vehicles in this market segment, this was the best “bang for the buck”. I strongly recommend this vehicle.

Had limited 2017Crosstrek unfortunately badly rear ended by plumber contractor's van. Survived crash. Eyesight and AWD was great, loved higher clearance and visibility around. It was best choice for the money, tried Honda, Toyota, Mazda counterparts - they are good vehicles but Subaru was better for me.
Tony Humphrey the internet manager made my experience buying my new fusion amazing. He took the time to explain everything and make sure I understand all the bells and whistles that went along with my car. Great salesman, would definitely buy from him again.
Most comfortable car I’ve owned

This is a fantastic, versatile, comfortable daily driver. It’s completely capable on and off the beaten path not to mention the cargo space is laid out perfectly. Most people will say its under powered and I understand however it’s a daily driver and not a race car. It’s 100% perfect for what you’re paying for. Absolutely love this car!
Walked in & immediately felt welcome by Mr. Tony Humphrey. He made my shopping & purchasing of my Ford fast & easy, a great salesman with great customer service. Would definitely recommend anyone to deal with him & him only!

So far so good. Looking forward to seeing what a Subaru has to offer. This is our first and the sales people assured us it won’t be our last.
I like the same server Roger he makes sure all gets done on my service. Plus he lets me know if something needs to be done. Great

Good price if you are a negotiator; great winter driving; nice space, roomy; stylish; good safety record; if you drive the original tangerine you'll get lots of questions & compliments
